Technical and economic considerations have identified an opportunity for composite materials which combine certain advantageous features of both noble and base metals. During an investigation of some platinum cladding techniques and of the properties of the resulting bimetals, data have been amassed which could have relevance to industrial as well as to decorative applications. Here the effects of deformation on the separate and the combined components are considered. A later paper will indicate how problems that may result from interdiffusion of the metals can be avoided.
